What can we reason, but from what we know? 



He, who thro' vast Immensity can pierce, 

See worlds on worlds compose one universe, 

Observe how system into system runs, 

What other planets circle other 

What varied being peoples ever 

.May tell why Heaven has made us as we are.

Do the moon and the stars affect our lives? As- 
trologers say yes; the position of the heavenly bo- 
dies is directly related to our actions and emotions. 
Whether this is true or false, one thing goes un- 
questioned: space is the environment that we share 
with every other living being, and it must certainly 
affect us all in one way or another. Earth is a more 
limited environment, which makes its effects on us 
more obvious. We know that all life is dependent on 
the sun, and on the plants that grow from the soil. 
We are cold or hot depending on the state of the 
earth's atmosphere, and we regulate our activities 
accordingly. 

More specifically, we are affected by the environ- 
ment of our own town. During school days, we 
spend the greatest amount of time 
within the limits of Longmeadow, a 
small New England town. A common 
sentiment in this area is that a 
person growing up in Long- 
meadow is sheltered, and may 
not be in touch with the real 
world. It is true that "subur- 
bia," our immediate environ- 
ment, provides us with a rela- 
tively quiet setting. The rates 
of crime and poverty are low 
here, as compared with the 
cities. A Longmeadowite who 
spends his days close to home 
and goes into the city only for 
shows and shopping malls is 
likely never to see in person 
goes on in the six o'clock news 
stead of crumbling tenements 
high rise office buildings, we see 
quaint colonial houses or modern one- 
family homes. Grassy backyards with 
sprinklers going, lawn mowers and 
two-car garages — all are part of our 
Longmeadow environment. 

Does this mean that we are out of 
touch with the real world? We do not 
have to be. A city dweller can be just as 
naive as any suburban high school stu- 
dent, if he closes his eyes to all but his 
immediate environment. As scientists 
explore foreign planets in an effort to 
better understand the Universe, so 
must we explore environments differ- 
ent from our own, if only to improve 
our understanding of the people with 
whom we share our state, our country, 
and our planet. 





We enter at fourteen and immediately sense a change. Middle school, with all its chewing gum laws, one-way 
corridors, and four foot sixth-graders, is behind us at last. On we go to a world of elective courses, parking lots, 
towering upperclassmen, and passing-time chaos. Endless new experiences await us — once we can find our 
way around. We are high school freshmen. 

As is often the case with new thrills, they wear off quickly. It takes surprisingly little time for this huge, 
unknown environment to become totally familiar. It really is not so hard to find room 243, and maybe chewing 
gum is not the ultimate freedom. During our four years of high school, the LHS environment grows to include 
friends, sports, studying, artwork, clubs, competition, and testing. We begin to find areas where we can excel, 
and where we fall behind. We may be discouraged by competition or discover new potential. 

Junior year, so we hear, is the hardest. We may think that we worked hard as sophomores, but just wait! 
Along with all those courses put off from ninth and tenth grade, comes a series of all-important, Saturday 
morning tests. It starts with the PSAT's in the fall, and from there the list goes on and on. Oh, to be a senior! 
They have it made. 

Senior year. By now, for the old time native Longmeadow High Schooler, the building is like our fall-winter- 
spring home away from home. We know every graffiti mark on those old walls, and we have been through a 
large percentage of the faculty. We have swamped our poor guidance counselors with enough problems, 
schedule changes, and last-minute college applications to make ourselves remembered, and it is time once 
again to march on. We become more and more distracted as the year progresses, and by March, "senioritis" 
has set in for good. 

Thank you, Longmeadow High School. Thank you for letting us grow as adolescents within your walls, and for 
releasing us as hopeful young adults into the outside world.

Despite the wide range of interests represented at Longmeadow High School, 
few people will disagree that the emphasis is always on academics. Math, foreign 
languages, science, English, and history are given top priority in the school, along 
with other more specialized academic courses. An academic environment fills the 
hallways and follows a student through the greater part of his school day. 

Just what creates the special environment of an academic classroom? Most 
evident is the teacher-students relationship. One man or woman teaches a group 
of fifteen to twenty-five teenagers, who are expected to listen and participate. 
Loudness and activity are suppressed for fifty-four minutes at a time, in the hope 
that knowledge and understanding will take their place. Boredom may deaden the 
atmosphere in one class, while the next one is fun and stimulating. Studies 
continue for the serious student in the library, at home, and even in the cafeteria 
and the courtyard. 

Testing creates a unique environment in itself. During a major test, hours of 
studying will either pay off, or be rendered futile. Everybody feels the tension in 
the air. Good grades, the goal of most college and career bound students, are 
largely dependent on test scores. The pressure to perform well is turned on and off 
with the ringing of the bell. x 

For academically inclined students, there are several clubs that are geared to 
their interests. In and out of school, an academic environment is always available 
to those who wish to pursue it. 





The environment in the English de- 
partment was seriously altered this 
year, especially for seniors who were 
suddenly mixed in heterogeneous 
classes. Except for the advanced 
placement students, all seniors found 
themselves among others with higher 
and lower intellectual capacities. This 
was a controversial issue throughout 
the year, causing an unstable atmo- 
sphere. Since the program was in its 
origins, all side and opinions were con- 
sidered for evaluation. Some teachers 
and students felt that the new system 
was more realistic in relation to the 
outside world, because people are not 
normally "tracked". Also, a valuable 
exchange of ideas was still apparent in 
the new classes. Others felt very un- 
comfortable and saw a loss of motiva- 
tion when an individual was placed with 
a group of higher or lower achievers. 
They felt that the discussions were 
dominated by smarter students while 
the others sat back overwhelmed or 
uninterested. 

Strong opinions were held in all 
classes both in favor of the program 
and against it. Whether one felt secure 
or not, there was definitely an acknowl- 
edgement of a change in atmosphere 
within the English environment.

During his sabattical year, Mr. Villeneuve lived with his family in France 
for the 1975-1976 season. He noticed many differences between the 
academic structures in France and those in the United States. One of the 
major points is that high school students in the United States are more 
college oriented, while a large percentage of French students choose 
some type of competitive vocational school instead. Other young people 
begin on-the-job training in direct preparation for their future careers. 
Those students going from high school to vocational school are limited in 
number because of the few schools offered and the inconvenience of 
their locations. France, in trying to alleviate this situation, is building 
more high schools to better educate the young people. Mr. Villeneuve 
feels that this will only cause more problems, because using the money to 
build high schools limits the funds available for the construction of voca- 
tional schools, which would be more profitable to the students. "France 
is working to abolish this situation," Mr. Villeneuve says, "but it will be a 
long, slow struggle."

One of the best courses designed to prepare 
students for the SAT's was the Senior Math pro- 
gram. As a quarter course it was offered during 
the fall quarter of each year and was a good 
review of the mathematics learned in high school. 
The majority of the students who enrolled in this 
program had not scored as well on the SAT's as 
they would have liked. After taking the course, 
however, the students had a great deal more 
confidence in themselves, and they performed 
much better than before the class. A study of the 
course was taken by Mr. McCarthy who found 
that "the students enrolled in Senior Math A did 
indeed improve their scores more than students 
not enrolling." 

Timed tests were frequently given for practice. 
They helped to improve the students' skill in nar- 
rowing down answers and deciding when it was 
more profitable to guess rather than leave the 
answer blank. Most people enjoyed the course, 
because the pass-fail option lessened the normal 
pressures of a classroom. Personal improvement, 
the goal of Senior Math, was met successfully.

Mr. Vangsness, a former student of Longmeadow High School, has 
been teaching history here for three years. He has noticed a great deal 
of change in the high school environment over the past ten years. A 
dress code was strictly enforced until 1970. Boys wore shirts and ties 
every day, and girls had to wear dresses. No jeans, denim trousers, 
miniskirts, or sandals were allowed, and boys' hair could not touch the 
top of the ear or the collar. Detention was given for any infraction of a 
school rule and had priority over sports and activities. Mr. Vangsness 
states, "School has become somewhat less strict. The administration 
has decided to face up to problems. This is why the idea of using the 
courtyard as a place to smoke was initiated." 

School in the sixties placed more emphasis on preparing students 
for college. A higher percentage of people went to college, as it was 
considered "the right thing to do." Now more students are going 
directly into vocational trades, because a college degree is not always 
an assurance of success. 

Mr. Vangsness is enthusiastic about working with some of his former 
teachers, and he has gotten to know them well on a personal basis. He 
feels that the faculty at Longmeadow is "fantastic", and because he 
can now better understand the teachers, he holds a deeper sense of 
admiration and respect for them.

What could be more memorable than a 
science lab period enlivened by teacher 
demonstrations? Thanks to our ingenious 
and courageous science department, these 
experiments are frequent. Mr. Suzor (better 
known as "Rocket Ray") is famous for set- 
ting off chemical explosions in front of his 
attentive classes. No lab block is without 
surprises in Rocket Ray's class. A room 
darkened for some shadowy experiments is 
a sure target for unexpected fireworks, and 
any discussion on hydrogen offers a perfect 
opportunity for the Rocket Man to demon- 
strate his hydrogen-heat reactions. There 
are times when Mr. Suzor's class gets al- 
most as excited as he does! 

In physics, there is nothing to compare 
with Mr. Hooper's no-fault car-down-hill 
demonstration. After a fascinating lecture 
on force vectors and gravity, Mr. Hooper 

attempted to 
show the applica- 
tion of the theory. 
He brought in a 
Tonka Toy truck 
and spent the 
block trying to roll 
it down a slope. 
Unknown to Mr. 
Hooper, however, 
the front wheels 
were jammed, 
and the truck re- 
mained at the top 
of the hill, dis- 
proving his entire 
explanation. Hoop 
calls of frustration 
filled the classroom, and in a fit of 
rage the disillusioned teacher vio- 
lently threw down the truck and 
stamped on it, demonstrating still 
another principle: the superior force 
of Mr. Hooper over a Tonka Toy 
truck. 

These episodes clearly illustrate 
the madness in the science depart- 
ment. Teacher demonstrations are 
a lot of fun and a refreshing break 
from routine material on photosyn- 
thesis, mitosis, or acceleration. Per- 
haps with time and practice, these 
presentations may even become 
educational learning experiences.

The A. B.C. program entered its 
third year at Longmeadow with 
new home sponsors. Mr. and Mrs. 
Thomas, who were previously in 
charge of the A. B.C. house, 
moved to Vermont with their son. 
Dr. and Mrs. Wilson, and fresh- 
man Eileen, were the new "fam- 
ily" of the A. B.C. students. Like 
last year, the individuals in the 
program became involved in 
many school and community 
functions, from Basketball and 
Class Council to National Honor Society. 

During an interview with Senior Greg Allison, he stated 
that "L.H.S. let me be what I wanted to be." He learned 
that people are people regardless of race. Greg realized that 
others were expecting him to succeed in school, scholasti- 
cally, socially, and personally. When asked what he enjoyed 
most at L.H.S., Greg replied, "Catching a touchdown pass in 
the East Longmeadow game." 

Many A. B.C. students find that the pressures are strong at 
Longmeadow and the competition is harder than at most 
other schools. There are demands that have to be fulfilled, 
and at times the students are placed in difficult situations, 
the learning, however, has been beneficial in the A. B.C. 
experience.

N.H.S. 



National Honor Society continued its work to 
promote scholarship at Longmeadow High. 
President Tina Millas was pleased by the large 
number of new members who were accepted 
in September. They joined the older members 
in N.H.S. activities around the school, which 
included a car wash and two induction teas. 
The tutoring program was very successful this 
year. It was popular and appreciated by both 
students and teachers, and it extended to tu- 
toring middle school students at night. N.H.S. 
members worked in the Lancer Bookstore and 
the History Department, where organizational 
help was needed. Advisors Mrs. Dolgin and 
Mrs. Dudley felt that the large membership in 
the club represented the continuing trend at 
L.H.S. toward scholastic achievement.

Chess Club is divided 
into two teams on the ba- 
sis of skill. The goal of the 
club was to capture the 
first place title, and to im- 
prove on playing skills. 
Donald Ladd was the advi- 
sor again this year. He 
aided the players and 
gave them guidance when 
needed. 

The purpose of Math 
Club is to investigate 
areas of math which are 
not normally discussed in 
math classes. Robert Alt- 
man was president, Peter 
Corey was vice president, 
Bob Hutchins was secre- 
tary, and Peter Kruc- 
zynski was treasurer. Oth- 
er members, along with 
advisor Mr. Greenwood, 
met often to work on 
problems or to use the 
computer. 

Seniors made up the 
core of the Math Team 
this year, under advisor 
Mr. Griffin. Mike Stein, 
Bruce Hochstadt, Ed Bet- 
tigole, Art Sibbach, Jim 
Medalie, and Bob Hutch- 
ins were key members 
who scored well during 
competition. Mike Stein 
was number one in the 
league, which was a re- 
markable achievement. 
Concentration and quick 
adaptibility to mathemat- 
ical concepts brought vic- 
tory for the team.

Matching Wits 

Longmeadow High School participated 
in "As Schools Match Wits" for the sec- 
ond year. After an outstanding record last 
year, "the brains" (1) returned to contin- 
ue their successful trend. A lot of drilling 
and memorizing was necessary for Julian 
Munnich, Mike Swirsky, Peter Vedder, 
And Betsy Rosenbloom, the four starters 
on the program. Coached by Mr. Fitzger- 
ald and Mrs. Rahkonen (2,3), Longmea- 
dow showed great ability, especially dur- 
ing tense moments and close matches. 
The team's victories on television were a 
source of great pride to the school. 






Debate Team 

This year's topic for the Debate 
Team (4) was whether there should be 
a comprehensive National Penal Re- 
form Program. Coached by Mr. Fitzger- 
ald (2), the team performed extremely 
well and continued its successful re- 
cord of first place in the Connecticut 
Valley Debate League. Senior Michael 
Gebron had been on varsity for two 
years and did a fine job as captain. Oth- 
er members included Julian Munnich, 
Steve Winniman, and Mitch Pulman. 
Sally Blanchard was the official time 
keeper and private cheerleader for the 
squad. Mr. Fitzgerald's serious attitude 
promoted strong participation and out- 
standing results.

There are many obvious differences between freshmen and seniors. Size is one, maturity (sometimes) is 
another. As senior year flies by, however, another important difference becomes apparent. Seniors find them- 
selves in an environment that is far removed from that of the underclassmen. 

For freshmen, the passing time brings them more and more into the mainstream of high school life. They have 
more freedom, more opportunities, and more responsibilities than ever before. They are surrounded during the 
day by older people, and there are lots of new faces in the halls for them to meet before the year is out. 

The environment of sophomores and juniors is in many ways similar to the freshman experience, but with less 
novelty and more high school savvy. Even the first half of senior year follows the pattern. Seniors have reached 
the top of the hierarchy, they have grown up a little bit, and they can really enjoy their position. 

Then something happens, and it is hard to pinpoint exactly when. Maybe it is being accepted at college that 
does it, or turning eighteen, or just seeing how small the freshmen keep getting. Whatever the reason, seniors 
begin to feel detached from the high school environment. Most of them know all the members of their class, at 
least by sight, and they realize that they may never see some of them again. The person sitting next to one senior 
in English class could be in Chicago next year, while he could be in New York. 
Plans for the future are no longer abstract; they are turning into reality. College-bound seniors prepare to 

leave Longmeadow behind; work- 
ing students are ready to say 
good-bye to their school days for- 
ever. When such a change is so 
close, it is no wonder that the 
senior environment is so full of 
tension ("When will that letter 
ever get here!"), excitement ("He 
got in! I can't believe it!"), and 
even a little sentimentality ("I'm 
going to buy the last hot lunch, no 
matter what it is."). 

It is amazing what can happen 
in four years.

Juniors 




Junior year is one of opportunities and responsibilities. It is 
new and exciting to be an upperclassman, but juniors find that 
they have to work for the privileges they once believed were 
freely given. The class as a whole must prove that it is a 
positive reflection of 

the school. Juniors ^^^^^ 

can involve them- 
selves in any school 
activity or organiza- 
tion. Many go for the 
action of a varsity 
team, while others 
seek prestigious po- 
sitions in clubs and 
on class council. 

Academically, this 
is an important year, 
especially for col- 
lege-bound stu- 
dents. Honors and 
advanced placement 
courses are offered 
for accelerated stu- 
dents who want to 
gain college credit. 
The PSAT becomes 
the first step in a 
long process of col- 
lege testing. For ju- 
niors it is time to be- 
gin seriously consid- 
ering themselves in 
relation to the fu- 
ture.

Sophomores 

Many sophomores found themselves in 
questionable positions: they were past the 
freshman stage, but were not yet upperclass- 
men. They began taking part in school activi- 
ties and were more aware of the functions of 
different clubs. The interests within the class 
varied, and sophomores were found anywhere 
from Key Club and Keyettes to French Club 
and Ski Club. Many participated in sports on 
both J.V. and Varsity levels. 

The class of '79 was strongly unified and 
had a great deal of school spirit. This was evi- 
dent throughout the year at such events as the 
Pep Rally, Homecoming and other school ac- 
tivities. The sophomores were an enthusiastic 
group, and they look forward to their junior 
year.

Freshmen 

The freshmen stepped into 
school with the typical fears and 
anxieties that all classes exper- 
ience when they first enter Long- 
meadow High. Being "a little 
frosh" and "the bottom of every- 
thing" were feelings that soon 
disappeared as students began to 
participate in class and school 
functions. President Scott 
Zucker felt that the class was 
working together, and by the end 
of the year new friendships devel- 
oped, and voluntary class council 
had successful turnouts. 

As one frosh stated, "Being a 
freshman on the first day of 
school is something I never want 
to do again — ever!"

How important is Gym to the school environment? According to Coach 
Robert D'Agastino, "Gym is an important part of the educative system in 
regard to the spirit, mind, and body. This is the Greek philisophical 
attitude toward the total education of man. People function more effi- 
ciently when the body is in good condition. This applies to the students of 
Longmeadow High School and all students in general. Athletics and 
sports are one asset to the school and should be thought of accordingly." 

Coach Dag also feels that "those who question the value of competi- 
tion do not realize that sports play the same role for students that 
advanced placement courses do. They are both for those who excel and 
are looking for a higher degree of difficulty in their courses."

Lancers 
Fight With 
Pride And 
Determination 




Pep talks, skull sessions, 
bread and butter plays, 
razzle dazzle, chalk 
talks, and the fribble 
club — what do all of these add up 
to? Simple: Coach Deary's game 
plans and stratagy for the 1976 
football season. The Lancers 
combined offense and defense 
units for an outstanding year and 



a reputable record. 

Longmeadow began the season 
with victories over Pittsfield, Clas- 
sical, and Minnechaug while they 
were upset by South Hadley and 
Northampton. Many players con- 
sidered Deary's non-defeatist at- 
titude to be the key to the team's 
successes. The coaching staff 
was excellent and determined to

produce a number one ball club. 
James Blakeman steadily im- 
proved as this year's quarter- 
back. He was quick to call plays in 
pressing situations, and he had a 
good arm for accurate passes. 
Joel Castleman, Bill McClure, and 
Bob Jones were capable runners 
and were responsible for a great 
deal of the team's scoring. Other 



outstanding offensive players in- 
cluded tight end Rob Carey, cen- 
ter Bob Miller, split end Greg Alli- 
son, guard Matt Hoffman, and 
tackles Keith Lemnios and Craig 
Kasen. The defense this season 
was a forceful line dominated by 
linebackers Alex Mandell and Ned 
McNally, safety Steve Wood, half- 
back John Tomko, centerback 



John Knisely, and ends Steve 
King, Nick Kasonatkis, and Dave 
Boyd. 

The injuries of Dave Clark, Jeff 
Lucier, and Matt Hoffman caused 
severe losses to the team. A lack 
of spirit from the players during 
some of the games was also detri- 
mental. As running back Bill Mc- 
Clure stated, "If we had been

more psyched, we could have 
beaten any team in the league." 
The Lancers were a "Second 
half" football team: most of the 
action took place late in their 
games. Although the offensive 
line was small in size and a bit 
inexperienced, they managed to 
put many points on the score- 
board, as in the Amherst game. A 



lot of talent developed over the 
season, along with the players 
pride in their team and in the 
school. Next year promises to be 
a superior season. It is very possi- 
ble that Longmeadow will be un- 
defeatable, emerging as a true 
power in the league.

This year's field hockey 
team was the greatest 
in the history of Long- 
meadow High School. 
The girls combined as a unified 
and powerful squad, with out- 
standing players on both offense 
and defense. Scoring was slow at 
first, but as the season pro- 
gressed there was no stopping 
the Lancerettes. There was a 
tough struggle for the league title, 
but the girls' strength and deter- 



mination brought them to victory. 
The team's spirit was a high point, 
especially in games against Min- 
nechaug and throughout both of 
the tournament games. 

The eight seniors on the team 
were led by co-captains Leslie 
Maglathlin and Mary Jo Quigley. 
The offense continually executed 
fine plays. Skill in passing and 
shooting was matched by strong 
running, making for a hard-driving 
unit. The defense was remark- 



able, and the players all mastered 
their positions. When the action 
was tense, goalie Kim LeDuc was 
ready to provide good judgment, 
swiftness, and agility around the 
cage. 

Coach Nancy Darsch passed 
her fourth season with the team 
and built a strong friendship with 
her players. She had confidence 
in their abilities and expected only 
the best from them. 




Next year's team is sure to feel 
the loss of the eight graduating 
seniors, but many of the gaps will 
be filled by players from this 
year's talented J.V. team. There 
were outstanding performances 
by captain Fay Trachtenberg, 
Kerry LeDuc, Gina Ferazzi and 
Bonnie Rubin. These girls, along 
with the rest of the squad, should 
carry on the success of the 1976 
team.

w 



ith several strong play- 
ers returning from last 
year, the soccer team 
had high hopes for a 
successful season. There were a 
great many talented individuals, 
but problems arose in utilizing this 
talent to form a combined unit. 
The Lancers had a winning sea- 
son, with a final record of 8-6-2, 
and some outstanding games 
with Westfield and Putnam. Com- 
petition was especially stiff 
against Chicopee, Ludlow, and 



West Side. The team gave its best 
efforts as the underdog, when the 
boys had to play hard to prove 
their capabilities. But during the 
easier games, they did not give 
everything they had. Hustle and 
determination were lacking at 
these times, and the players were 
somewhat inconsistent. The team 
could play well when they set 
their minds to it, but when spirit 
was low, the output was seriously 
affected.

Tri-captains Craig Cloud, Bart 
Dunlevy, and Ted Snyder helped 
in getting the group prepared to 
meet the opposition. Coach Mor- 
rissette felt that these boys were 
a tremendous boost to the team's 
morale. 

Longmeadow was also fortu- 
nate in having the finest coaching 
staff in Western Mass. Defensive 
Coach Steve Kaplin and Offensive 
and Goalie Coach Charlie John- 
son aided Mr. Morrissette in find- 



ing the strong and weak points of 
the team, and in correcting any 
problems with the lines. 

Bob Kellogg and Rob Paulides, 
the high scorers of the season, 
did an excellent job in the offen- 
sive line. Seniors Tim Dwight, Phil 
Cushman, Steve O'Conner, and 
Ron Gordenstein, and underclass- 
men Andy Janik, Peter Guterman, 
Mike Hurwitz, and Bob Snyder 
were the strength of this year's 
offense and defense.

I'd like to kick the ball right 
through the kid's head," 
was the feeling of an 
anonymous Lancerette 
from the girl's soccer club about 
an opponent. Quite a change in 
attitude from last year! The girls 
were more aggressive and skilled 
as a group, with the help and ad- 
vice of coaches Jangle and Glynn. 
The informal atmosphere of a 
club attracted many girls who 
would not normally have gone out 



for a fall sport, making for a di- 
verse group of interested players. 
There were seven games sched- 
uled for the twenty-two players 
chosen for the "all-star" team, 
while the rest of the club partici- 
pated in intramurals. Outstanding 
senior players were Diane Cartw- 
right (3), Amy Glynn (4), Nancy 
Frankel (5), and Joma Venti. The 
girls' hard work will help them 
reach their ultimate goal of be- 
coming a varsity sport.

Girls' Swim Team had a 
difficult time filling in 
gaps from the loss of 
valuable graduated 
seniors. Though it was a chal- 
lenge, the group worked hard in 
attempting to hold their Western 
Mass. title. Captains Debbie 
Dowd, Sandy Strempel and co- 
captain Moira Murphy helped 
bring the team together to reach 
third place in this year's Western 



Mass. meet. Outstanding seniors 
were Lynn and Linda Wiatrowski 
and divers Tina Millas and Tami 
Ezzo. Nancy Riker and Pam Mur- 
ray were strong in freestyle, Bren- 
da Skelley handled the butterfly, 
and Martha Tripp showed talent 
in breastroke competition. 

Spirits were low during part of 
the season, when the Lancerettes 
had some disappointing races. 



They faced tough opposition, but 
their efforts were rewarded by a 
great comeback in the Columbus 
Day Relays. The team consisted 
of many underclassmen, and 
promising, although key seniors 
will be missed.

High School is Cross 
Country running. A great deal of 
dedication is needed from each 
member of the team if the Lanc- 
ers are to perform well at meets. 
Practices include six to eight 
miles of running through town ev- 
ery day. An official race course is 
a maximum of three miles long, 
and usually includes some hilly 
areas. The Longmeadow course 



begins at Mill Road, continues 
down Longmeadow Street, and 
finishes back at the start. 
Coached by Mr. Winseck, the 
boys reached third place in the 
Valley Wheel league, led by sen- 
iors Art Lucey and Bill Hopfe, and 
juniors Steve Finch and Francis 
"Buzzard" McNally. Sophomores 
Andrew and Stuart Sears also lent 
strength to this year's team and 
will carry on the Lancers' success 
for the next two years. Wheel

The cheerleaders are a 
group of girls who are 
anxious to show their 
support and enthusi- 
asm for school sports. They prac- 
tice during the week to perfect 
jumps, splits, voices, cheers and 
sidelines. 

"... Practice again? ... Do I 
have to change? ... Let's prac- 
tice in the gym- it's too cold out- 
side . . . Sue, I can't come today 



Luncheons are held each Satur- 
day before football games, and 
dinners are held before basketball 
games. 

"... Candy corn, M&M's and 
plenty of pepsi . . . Put your shak- 
ers outside of the house, on the 
lampost . . . Food, food, foo- 
d — I'm stuffed! . . . How am I ever

After the luncheons or dinners, 
the ten girls are off for the game.

The 1977 Boys* Basketball 
Team suffered the loss of some 
excellent graduating seniors, but 
those positions were quickly filled 
by new players of high quality. 

Sophomore Tyrone Settles led 
the team in scoring with an aver- 
age of twenty points per game. 
He also became a leading scorer 
of Division 1 in Western Mass. Ty- 



rone provided the inspiration that 
the Lancers needed for a winning 
season. At the home East Long- 
meadow game, Tyrone complete- 
ly overwhelmed the crowd as he 
shot the ball from half-court, and 
scored in the final seconds of the 
first half. He was often awarded 
with standing ovations for his re- 
markable performances during

The girls' basketball season 
started slowly, as the team could 
not seem to pull their talents to- 
gether while facing stiff competi- 
tion in the opening games. The 
Lancerettes were not discour- 
aged, however. They continued to 
work and to build up their individ- 
ual skills. Many team members 
felt that the year was mainly one 
of development, because of sev- 
eral newcomers who needed ac- 
tual playing experience. The team 



gained confidence as the season 
progressed and came together 
into more of a unit. They began to 
cooperate and develop mutual 
trust. 

There were some disappointing 
moments, as when the girls lost 
two extremely close games in the 
last few minutes. Many practices 
were concentrated on strategy 
and the improvement of plays, so 
that the overall performance 
would bring forth a victorious sea- 



son. 

Senior Co-Captains Mary Jo 
Quigley and Sandy Strempel were 
two outstanding assets to the 
group. Some other key players 
were "Basketball Jones McCray," 
"Tap-dancing' Kusiak," "Big B 
Skelley," and "S. Macadoo Das- 
kalakis." 

The J.V. team displayed com- 
petent playing this year under the

nis. Co-Captains G. Hutchinson

But 

Not 

Lonely 




For several years, the boys' 
gymnastics team has been build- 
ing, strengthening, and learning in 
hopes of better future seasons. 
This year their strivings reached a 
climax as the Lancers combined 
to form a real power in Western 
Mass. and State competitions. 
Longmeadow saw its best team 
ever and had an outstanding re- 
cord. Much of the high scoring 



was achieved by seniors Bart 
Dunlevy, Jim Bradford, Harvey 
Stockhammer, Craig Cloud, Jim 
Kelly, Jim Bennett, and Chris 
Newton. Several juniors and un- 
derclassmen, including Dave Da- 
mon, Brook Paulides, John Wass, 
Mark Stover, and Everett Black, 
were also a part of the action, and 
they will certainly do well in future 
competition. 



All six events: floor, side horse, 
rings, parallel bars, high bar, and 
vaulting had many strong individ- 
ual participants. Coached by John 
Kober and Eddie Tremble, the 
boys worked together as a unit to 
create a memorable season. 

1. Hey. the floor is the other way!! 2. Jim 
Bradford stretches to impress the judges. 
3. Falling asleep on the job again is senior 
Bart Dunlevy.

Skill, grace, determination, and 
courage are just a few qualities of 
a gymnast. Longmeadow High 
School was fortunate to have a 
girls' gymnastics team comprised 
of several of these outstanding in- 
dividuals. Senior Co-Captains 
Lynn and Linda Wiatrowski helped 
to build up the team's confidence, 
and they had every member 
psyched for each meet. The girls 
held a genuine concern for one 
another, which created the spirit 
that led to top performances. 



Routines of superior caliber were 
introduced this year, and scoring 
in the meets improved tremen- 
dously. 

With the help of Coach Judi 
Gregory, the group aimed for per- 
fection in performing every trick, 
and on each piece of equipment. 
Even the smallest mistakes can 
be costly in competition, so Miss 
Gregory was critical of every as- 
pect of the girls' routines. 

Seniors Julie Whitney, Tina Mil- 



las, Linda and Lynn Wiatrowski, 
and Gail Felper are experienced 
gymnasts, and they reached 
many of their individual goals by 
the end of the season. The team's 
depth was filled in by Sopho- 
mores Paula Shear, Cindy Aivalis, 
and Heather Rowe, and by Junior 
Linda Skole. Freshmen Caren Da- 
vidson and Kerry LeDuc, and 
Sophomore Cheryl Atamian will 
help to close some of the gaps left 
by the graduating seniors.

Girls' ski team was an outstand- 
ing and competitive group. Coach 
Bob Frangillo, a student at Spring- 
field College, encouraged the girls 
to ski agressively and without 
hesitation. Before meets, usually 
held at Mt. Tom, there was a cer- 
tain amount of nervousness on 
the part of the girls, but this was 



soon replaced by concentration 
on every turn and gate in the 
course. 

The twelve members were very 
close in performance, and with 
only one senior, captain Amy 
Lyon, the team has great poten- 
tial for continued success in the 
future.

Consistency is the word to de- 
scribe the boys' ski team this 
year. The team held a fantastic 
record and scored well in Western 
Mass. Competition. Many skiers 
made remarkable improvement 
by the end of the season, and rac- 
ing times were close within the 
team. Determination and effort 
were never lacking from Long- 



meadow High, as the boys were 
serious about every meet. Other 
teams in the area were extremely 
surprised by the Lancers' accom- 
plishments. Coach Bob Frongillo 
and Captain Kevin McCarthy, as 
well as the other ski team mem- 
bers, deserve much recognition 
for their hard work and success.

Under Mark Mickelson's chlor- 
inated leadership, the boys' swim 
team developed a very impressive 
dual meet record for the season. 
The group was headed by Seniors 
Barry Katz, Rick Lockner, Jim Me- 
dalie, and Wally Wolf, and it was 
backed by a large number of am- 
bitious swimmers who formed 
three different squads. The boys 
swam nearly two and a half miles 
every day at practice, making 
swim team one of the most gruel- 



ing of L.H.S. sports. The group 
also made use of the new Univer- 
sal Gym every other day for half 
an hour, which helped them with 
conditioning. 

The season began with a close 
loss to Minnechaug, and the Lanc- 
ers were also slimly defeated by 
East Longmeadow. There were 
several victories as well, such as 
the competition against Amherst, 
which Coach Mickelson ran very 



strategically. 

Longmeadow was in Division B 
this year, which is second in diffi- 
culty. The boys performed re- 
markably well after the loss of 
several key seniors last year. 
They finished with an 11-3 re- 
cord, the best in the team's histo- 
ry. The sucess of the season is a 
tribute to the talent, drive, and 
endurance of the L.H.S. swim- 
mers.

The first shock of defeat, game- 
by-game changes in strategy, and 
controversies over refereeing and 
ice time are just a few of the ex- 
periences faced by the Lancer 
hockey team. Led by the exper- 
ienced and skillful Coach Suzor 
and by a strong offensive and de- 
fensive lineup, the team skated to 
an impressive 13-6-3 record. 
Leading the squad in scoring abili- 



ty were Senior Co-Captain Bill Mc- 
Clure, Jeff Sisitsky, Rick Dur- 
ocher, and Jack Dineen. Senior 
Co-Captain Ted Snyder, Junior 
forward Jon Ditmar, and Seniors 
Steve O'Connor and Greg Smith 
helped make for a very well-es- 
tablished team. Mitch August was 
a strong goalie for the team, as he 
thwarted numerous shots on 
goal.

Freshmen Scott Buffum and 
Mark McClure are definite assets 
to the Lancer icemen for their 
forthcoming seasons, along with 
many sophomore and junior play- 
ers already working on the Varsity 
level. The entire squad skated 
successfully, checking, shooting, 
and blocking to optimum perfor- 
mance. It was their superior 
speed, stamina, and agility that 
created a winning *76-'77 season 
for Lancer hockey.

The 1976-77 Wrestling Team, 
coached by Norman Harris, pro- 
duced fine results in the Western 
Mass. competition. John Asth- 
alter, Paul Mathison, and Co-Cap- 
tain John Robbins were the mem- 
bers who used the wrestling sea- 
son to improve their skills, in 
preparation for the Western 
Mass. match. Co-Captain John 
Knisley was unable to compete 
because of an injury. 



The wrestlers struggled to 
make the weight reguirements 
and were known to loose fifteen 
pounds in three days by starving 
and working out. After the last big 
tournament, which is usually held 
near Boston, it is traditional for 
the bus to stop at every eating 
place on the way home. John 
Robbins reports that an average 
wrestler can gain ten pounds in 
the five hours following the States 



Tournament.

"It isn't whether you win or lose; it's how you play 
the game." That is what we are told, and it sounds 
good, but does anyone really believe it? Any Lancer 
fan would have doubts about such a statement after 
attending any competition, male or female. The play- 
ers strive to improve their skills during practices, but 
when the contest begins, WINNING IS EVERYTHING!! 

Can the thrill of victory be explained as the gratifi- 
cation of school spirit? Yes, to some extent it can. In 
any team sport, there is a great sense of exhilaration 
in shared victory. The excitement of a player who has 
just scored is not only from personal glory, but also 
from the knowledge that he is leading his team on to 
success. 

There is more to winning than team spirit, however. 
An individual achievement is equally exhilarating. The 
player who scored the only goal in a losing game is 
likely to feel like a partial winner, as is someone who 
performed well in track or gymnastics. The idea of a 
team is to combine these individuals to give a unit 
effort, which multiplies the thrill of victory by the 
smiles of teammates and the cheers of the crowd.

Every fall morning at 7:00, the 
thirty girls of the Drill Team began 
practicing routines to the beat of 
a drum. They marched at home 
football and basketball games and 
worked hard to perfect each step. 
Advisor Mrs. Miller and Senior 
Captain Katie Hunt were both 
very enthusiastic about Drill 
Team and the spirit it creates. 

There were only three Major- 
ettes this year, advised by Mr. 



Burkle. They performed orginal 
routines during half-time at the 
football games, as well as at sev- 
eral basketball games. One of the 
Majorettes, Liz Sattler, per- 
formed at a hockey game, com- 
bining twirling with a skating rou- 
tine. Next year the Majorettes 
hope to find more girls interested 
in twirling, and they look forward 
to teaching anyone who would 
like to become a Majorette.

Every Tuesday evening this win- 
ter, one hundred rosy-cheeked 
ski club members returned from 
an afternoon at Mt. Tom. Both be- 
ginners and advanced skiers were 
welcomed in the group, as the 
aim of the club was to get more 
people out on the slopes. Advisors 
Mr. McCarthy and Mr. Grant were 
enthusiastic in organizing a week- 
end trip to Waterville Valley in 
New Hampshire. Plans for next 
year include a week's vacation 
out west, if enough money can be 



collected through fund-raising ac- 
tivities. Mr. McCarthy stated, 
"Skiing is a great way to forget all 
of our frustrations. When we take 
off on the bus, we leave the busy 
world of Longmeadow High 
School and ski our socks off!!" 

Girls' Leaders Club, advised by 
Miss Darsch, Miss Gregory and 
Mrs. Segur, and Boys' Leaders 
Club, advised by Mr. D'Agostino 
and Mr. Williams, are organiza- 
tions that provide an opportunity 



for students interested in service 
and athletics to assist the phys- 
ical education department. The 
leaders help out with refereeing 
and spotting in gym classes. Both 
the girls and boys in the Leaders 
Club were hard workers, and their 
efforts were felt throughout the 
phys. ed. department.

Rifle team consisted of many 
talented marksmen who enabled 
Longmeadow to score well during 
their nine scheduled matches. 
Both the offhand (standing) and 
the prone (lying down) positions 
were used. Mr. Villeneuve has 
been the team's advisor for sev- 
eral years and has the experience 
needed to coach and encourage 
the group. 

Students can find challenge in 



mountain climbing, snowshoeing, 
cross-country hiking, and cycling 
when they join the outing club. 
They also gain a sense of group 
satisfaction, as the members of- 
ten work together and aide each 
other in various activities. Mr. 
Mannheim heads this adventur- 
ous club, and he shares the stu- 
dent's interest in the outside envi-

Daisy-Weeds Game 




As the two teams hit the field, a 
tremendous roar arose from the 
crowd. Wrong! It was not the an- 
nual E.L. football game, but the 
famed Daisy-Weed competition. 
The Weeds were led by coaches 
Joel Castleman and Bill McClure, 
while the Daisies were helped by 
Ned McNally and Jeff Lucier. The 
first half was played aggressively 
and the score was close. But the 
Daisies wilted in the second half, 
giving the game to the Weeds with 
a score of 18-6.

"Let our artists rather be those who are gifted to discern the true 
nature of the beautiful and graceful; then will our youth dwell in a 
land of health, amid fair sights and sounds, and recieve the good in 
everything; and beauty, the effluence of fair works, shall flow into 
the eye and the ear, like a health-giving breeze from a purer region, 
and insensibly draw the soul from earliest years into likness and 
sympathy with the beauty of reason." 

Plato, The Republic 

Walk in the main entrance, take a sharp left through the double 
doors, and you will find yourself in an environment of painters, 
sculptors, potters, weavers, photographers, and jewelry makers. 
Creative prints and sketches decorate the hallway, and the rooms 
are bustling with the activity of students and machines. 

The artistic environment of Longmeadow High School is not 
confined to this hallway, however. There are several areas in the 
building where students and teachers engage themselves in the 
fine and applied arts. There are singing groups, bands, an orches- 
tra, all forms of basic technology, cultural clubs, and journalism. 

For some of our talented LHS classmates, the arts will always be a 
way of life. For others, they serve as a hobby. The accomplish- 
ments of the artists are shared with the entire school through art 
exhibits, publications, and performances.

Longmeadow High School is 
lucky to have an excellent vocal 
music department. Lyrics and I 
Cantori are two of the groups 
which contain many talented stu- 
dents. In an interview with Mr. 
Peter Thomsen (2), he stated, 
'This year's Lyrics is one of the 
best we have had." The members 
perform at school concerts 
where various singers do solo 
performances. 

Within Lyrics, a group of stu- 
dents is chosen to make up I Can- 
tori. They work together on their 
own time, outside of school, for 
no extra credit. The purpose of I 
Cantori is to give a smaller group 
of students a chance to go fur- 
ther in music. They sing difficult 
pieces, including all types of 
chamber music. 

This year, both Lyrics and I 
Cantori were chosen to perform 
for the state's music teachers 
during the All-State competition. 
They were the only group chosen 
from the whole state. It was a 
well-deserved honor for Long- 
meadow students of song.

A change of great importance 
took place in the vocal music de- 
partment this year when a Mixed 
Chorus was formed. The new co- 
ed vocal music group, composed 
of many talented students, per- 
formed at several school con- 
certs during the year. Mr. Thorn- 
sen, in explaining why the Mixed 
Chorus was formed, stated, "We 
switched this year because I felt it 
was a much more natural set-up. 
Girls and boys like working to- 
gether, so instead of discouraging 
those singers who didn't make 
Lyrics, it gave them a chance to 
work together." Mr. Thomsen felt 
that the chorus provided excel- 
lent voice training as well. The 
members learned about singing in 
a co-ed group, where the male 
and female voices are so differ- 
ent. Mr. Thomsen believed that 
the switch was a very positive one 
in which everyone would benefit. 

The singers added a variety of 
music to the programs. Like Lyr- 
ics, they performed difficult 
pieces without fault. Mr. Thorn- 
sen's hard work and dedication 
was certainly evident in all of their 
performances.

Two groups which fill the halls 
with melodic music are the Girls' 
and Men's Choruses. These 
groups consist of talented young 
singers who perform many fam- 
ous selections. The members re- 
hearse during school hours and 
receive course credit for their ef- 
forts. They are required to com- 
mit all of their music to memory. 
Mr. Thomsen, the choral director, 
feels that the choruses are excel- 
lent training for prospective 
members of Lyrics and Mixed 
Chorus. In each group, the vocal- 
ists practice harmonizing their 
music and singing in varying 
tones. They do vigorous vocal ex- 
ercises to advance their skill in 
sight-reading, and to help them 
develop better intonation. 

These choruses performed at 
many school concerts during the 
year. The singers enjoyed their 
training and look forward to par- 
ticipating in more advanced cho- 
ral groups next year. Mr. Thom- 
sen is extremely proud of all his 
young vocalists, and he hopes 
they will continue with their music 
schooling.

The beautiful sounds of violins 
and cellos are frequently heard in 
the halls of Longmeadow High as 
the school orchestra practices. 
The group plays all types of clas- 
sical and romantic music, and 
they perform at school concerts. 
Under the direction of Wilfred 
Burkle (3) and Concert Mistress 
Joan Hurley, the group performs 
in the spring and every other year 
in an exchange concert. These 
concerts are held in various Mas- 
sachusetts towns. Many of the 
students who play in the orches- 
tra are also members of the 
"Young People's Symphony" of 
Springfield. 

The High School's wind ensem- 
ble, also directed by Mr. Burkle, 
is a concert band selected on the 
basis of auditions each spring. 
They play in the fall and at the 
Pops Concert. At the fall concert 
this November, the wind ensem- 
ble was honored to have Rolf 
Smedvig (2), the assistant princi- 
pal trumpet of the Boston Sym- 
phony and the Boston Pops, as a 
guest artist. Mr. Smedvig played 
his trumpet masterfully before a 
mesmerized audience.

Every time the football team 
scored a touchdown this fall, the 
Longmeadow High School band 
dutifully played "Lancers Will 
Shine," while Mr. Burkle's wand 
swiftly cut the air. On Saturday 
afternoons, Curt Freedman and 
Art Sibbach could sometimes be 
seen in the empty stands playing 
"Go, Fight, Win" on the bass 
drum and trumpet. At football 
games, rain or shine, the musical 
support was always there. The 
band brought spirit to the basket- 
ball court as well and performed 
at school concerts. 

A different kind of sound is 
sometimes heard after school or 
at seven o'clock in the morning, 
as the Jesters prepare for their 
concerts. This unique group con- 
sists mainly of brass instruments, 
with some percussion. They are a 
stage band selected on the basis 
of auditions and are led by Mr. 
Burkle. The Jesters play all types 
of commercial music and perform 
at many festivals and competi- 
tions.

Two of the most important concerts 
of the music department, the Pops 
Concert and the Chamber Music Con- 
cert, were very successful this year. 
Combining vocal and instrumental 
groups, they played to large, receptive 
audiences. 

The Chamber Music Concert spot- 
lighted several small chamber ensem- 
bles, including I Cantori, a string quar- 
tet, and a horn quartet. These and oth- 
er talented groups helped to recreate 
the grand flavor of the seventeenth 
century, for a delightful evening. 

The Pops Concert had a completely 
different flavor: that of diversification. 
There was something for everyone 
who attended: a hilarious Muppet 
show, Lyrics swinging, Sandy 
Walker singing, Cheryl McCray 
dancing, and the Symphonic 
Band prancing, all topped off 
with smoke and balloons. The 
highlight performance of the 
evening was by Jesters, LHS' fan- 
tastic jazz band. Their dynamic 
presentation drew well-deserved, 
thunderous applause.

Youth For 
Understanding 

For the first time at Lorvgmeadow High School, two 
foreign students spent their senior year here through 
the Youth for Understanding organization. The year 
was very rewarding for Stefan Schuster (1) of Ger- 
many and Byron Papazissis (2) of Greece. The boys 
made many friends in Longmeadow and will not be 
forgotten by the class of '77. 

Stefan is from Herborn, Germany, a town near 
Frankfurt. In Longmeadow, he kept active with sports 
and attended open parties, dances, and basketball and 
football games. He will go back to Herborn after this 
year for his thirteenth year of school, taking with 
him many assorted memories of his American visit. 
One incident early in the trip which will not be quickly 
forgotten happened at a local shopping plaza. Stefan 
was rolling a cigarette, which is a common practice in 
Germany because of the high costs of packaged ciga- 
rettes. An abrupt reaction by some nearby policemen 
left Stefan quite bewildered. By the end of the year, 
however, he acquired the savvy that is needed as an American 
teenager! 

Byron comes from Saloniki, Greece, a city close to the sea. His 
father started the Youth for Understanding program in Greece in 
1970, and he remains the head of the organization there. Byron 
has been to the States once before, and he plans to go to college 
here. He has applied to several schools in the New England area. 
Byron enjoys being able to choose his courses at LHS, which is not 
done in Greece. He is interested in soccer and basketball and plays 
a lot of water sports during the summer. In the small Greek village 
where Byron spends his summers, he enjoys movies and discos at 
night and meets quite a few tourists. 

Both boys participated in AFS weekends, and they visited several 
American cities with the group. They were honorary members of 
NHS, which is a clear reflection of the high esteem in which the 
boys were held by the school. 





The Grassy Gutter Players, under the direction of Mel 
Grant, presented "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest," a 
serio-comic comment on individualism and the oppressant 
forces working to eliminate it. The play, written by Dale Was- 
serman, is based on Ken Kesey's novel about events in a state 
mental institution. Mr. Grant's direction was infallible, and he 
had an excellent cast. Junior David Brinnel was impressive as 
Randle Patrick McMurphy, the man who always defies the 
rules-any where he goes. McMurphy's rebellious spirit is ulti- 
mately conquered by his foil, Nurse Ratched, effectively 
played by Marji Grant. Among those under the nurse's tyran- 
nical hold are Chris Gironda as the effeminate ward president, 
Harding, and Mark Cohen as Billy Bibbit, the intimidated, 
stuttering youth. Also featured were Dave Lewin, Neal Rad- 
ding, Dennis McCauley, and Eugene Kane as the monstrous 
Chief Bromden who regains his self-pride through 
McMurphy. Rounding out the cast were Faith Prybylo, Philip 
O'Reilly, Rick Rubin, Stephan Rutherford, Laura Lawson, and 
Sandy Hower. Together, the cast proved that exciting and 
professional entertainment exists at LHS.

Homecoming '77 
"The World As We See It" 

The second annual Homecoming weekend was sponsored by the 
senior class. The theme was, "The World As We See It," and each class 
developed a presentation depicting this phrase. A parade was held 
before the East Longmeadow football game, which lasted an hour. It 
was led by the cheerleaders and the band, followed by the floats, drill 
team, majorettes, and other interested participants. Seniors from last 
year were sent personal invitations to take part in all homecoming 
activities. 

A contest of "spirit chain" links was held prior to the weekend. 
Each class purchased links at the cost of one cent each. The senior 
class won this event and split the total amount of link money with the 
freshman class, who had the best float in the parade. The weekend 
was extremely successful, in that it raised money and gathered spirit 
and enthusiasm from the school and town.

OUTLET 



Outlet is the annual literary maga- 
zine that is published in the spring by 
Longmeadow High School students. 
Any individual is eligible to submit 
work, which is judged anonymously. 
The magazine is funded by the school 
committee, who recognize Outlet as a 
worthy organization. 

Other activities of the club this year 
included a field trip to a publishing 
house in February, where members 
were able to see the printing of a liter- 
ary magazine prior to the publication 
of their own issue. Mrs. Satta, the club 
advisor, was responsible for all of the 
written work submitted. Mrs. Broder- 
ick handled the artistic material. Edi- 
tor Kim Bolger stated, "Outlet offers 
students the chance to be more cre- 
ative, because there is no basic struc- 
ture that must be followed." It allows 
people to see their own writing, 
artwork, or photography published, 
and to receive objective views on their 
degree of creativity.

FRENCH CLUB was very popular this 
year, with a membership of over thirty 
students. Meetings were held each 
month in order to plan French din- 
ners, coordinate field trips, and dis- 
cuss French culture. President Mark 
Villeneuve stated that the purpose of 
the club was to "further students' in- 
sights into France, its culture, and its 
people." 

LATIN CLUB was a small but active 
group. Their activities ranged from 
composing a newspaper to organizing 
correspondence with other clubs from 
the surrounding areas. Mr. Kahan and 
Mr. Dudley were this year's advisors. 
They stressed all aspects of Latin, in- 
cluding both language and culture.

The problem of "Aging in America" was 
the main concern of the World Affairs Club. 
The group organized a day in March when 
several speakers came to Longmeadow High. They brought up the impor- 
tance of rousing more public interest in the problems of the aged, in order 
to solve existing conflicts. The club also visited the United Nations, and 
they had the opportunity to meet with specialists in the field of the aged 
community. The eight members of the World Affairs Club were very satis- 
fied with the results of their work. They felt that their chosen area of 
concentration was one that always calls for special attention. The club's 
goal this year was to see that aged people received more help and consider- 
ation. Involvment such as theirs is what leads to the realization of this goal. 
A new group was orginated at Longmeadow High this year, as Mr. Mc- 
Kenna began an International Club. Membership was open to any student 
interested in learning about foreign cultures. Speakers made regular ap- 
pearances, including Joyce Villeneuve on France, and friends of Mr. Mc- 
Kenna on Czechoslovakia. Mr. McKenna hopes participation in the club 
will increase next year, and that international foods and cooking will be 
emphasized. Trips to New York City, Montreal, and even abroad are being 
considered, as well as some type of exchange program for the future.

The American Field Service is an organization which concen- 
trates on the development of friendships within the country and 
internationally. Each year, two students come to Longmeadow 
High School from different nations. One of A.F.S.'s responsibil- 
ities is to welcome these students and to lend assistance. 

This year's A.F.S. students were Sabine Demolder from Bel- 
gium, and Wanpen "Joom" Jantim from Thailand. The girls 
gained a great deal from their experiences here and are thankful 
for the many services that A.F.S. provided. 

Activities of the club included two weekends when foreign stu- 
dents in the area were invited to Longmeadow, selling cards, the 
A.F.S. fair, and the international dinner. Mr. Potvin has been the 
advisor of the club for several years. He is interested in breaking 
down the barriers people think exist between countries, and he 
emphasizes the points that all nations have in common. The club 
works for communication on a personal and humane level. The 
A.F.S. motto, "shake the world, start with my hand" definitely 
applies to this club.

FAMILY PORTRAIT 



Homeroom 143, the notorious meeting place of 
the Masacksic club, is where all of this came togeth- 
er. It is the room where scrawled blackboard mes- 
sages, frantic screaming during homeroom period, 
and Thursday afternoon editors meetings culminat- 
ed in this yearbook. The book is the product of hard- 
searched ideas, brainstorms, combined talents, deal- 
ings with hundreds of people, and hours of work in 
and out of school. 

The environment within the yearbook room tends 
to go through phases. Just after a deadline has been 
met, one feels the sensation of working on a great 
literary and artistic classic-to-be. As another dead- 
line draws near, however, the word to describe our 
environment is "MADHOUSE"!

ike JET JOTTER 








In its twenty-second year of 
publication, the Jet Jotter looks 
better than ever. The overall qual- 
ity of the writing, illustrations, and 
layouts have noticeably improved 
over previous years. This is a re- 
sult of the close-knit feeling 
among the staff. Many close 
friendships were formed between 
the members that made working 
toward each deadline enjoyable, 
instead of a chore. 

The driving force behind the Jet 
Jotter is undisputably the manag- 
ing editor, Laura Kenney. She 
takes the responsibility of over- 
seeing every aspect of each issue, 
guided by the advisors, Mr. Ge- 
linas and Mr. Delano. 

Like most nonprofit organiza- 
tions, the Jet Jotter was plagued 
by financial troubles. Nonethe- 
less, they managed to publish a 
newspaper worthy of praise and 
recognition. The group entered 
into competition for an Ail-Ameri- 
can rating this year, as a climax to 
their accomplishments.

While the Longmeadow High School students and faculty roll through each school 
day, there is a group of people behind them who are working to make everything 
run smoothly. These individuals make up the service environment, and the effects 
of their work are felt by everybody in the building. 

The service environment is centered in the main office, where the administrators 
and secretaries perform the leading school functions. The guidance department, 
filled with many dedicated workers, is the priceless friend of every befuddled 
adolescent and college applicant. The librarians, cooks, nurse, and maintenance 
staff are also parts of the unique environment of service. 

Among the student body are a great number of individuals involved in serving 
their class, the school, and also the outside community. Key Club and Keyettes are 
the largest, most widely acknowledged service clubs at LHS. The four class councils 
work equally hard, led by elected officers. Many student priveleges and comforts 
that are taken for granted are actually the result of hours of committee work. 

In a school as large as LHS, there is bound to be a wide variety of interests among 
the students. Therefore, the great number of individuals involved in service, and the 
high quality of their work, is a positive reflection on the entire school.

Mr.Teixeira spent the first 
half of this year as a full-time 
student at the University of 
Massachusetts. He was en- 
rolled in a program entitled, 
"Future Studies: Education 
for a Changing World," and he 
worked toward a Certificate 
of Advanced Graduate Study. 
Mr. Teixeira carried a heavy 
student load, earning fifteen 
credits in areas from school 
reform to evaluations of the 
curriculum. He enjoyed the 
role of a student as well as the 
campus life, and his regard 
for U-Mass has increased 
greatly. On returning to Long- 
meadow High School, Mr. 
Teixeira found it easier to em- 
pathize with the students, 
since he had been reacquaint- 
ed with such frustrations as 
not getting course choices, 
and seeing lots of red tape. 
The work was demanding but 
very rewarding, and he hopes 
to continue with the program 
during the summer. 

The program is aimed at re- 
sults in several areas. There is 
a need to develop programs 
for curriculum evaluations, 
where it would be possible to 
look at teaching methods, 
and to make necessary 
changes once the goals are 
set. Instructional techniques 
should be expanded to create 
wider variety in classes. The 
program emphasizes the re- 
quirements of the outside 
world. 

Mr. Teixeira was involved in 
a great deal of study and re- 
search which helped him re- 
late to the program itself. He 
feels that his work was ex- 
tremely beneficial to him as 
an administrator of the high 
school, and as an individual of 
the world community.

The guidance environ- 
ment is a steady one be- 
cause the needs of the stu- 
dents are basically the same 
from year to year. While the 
number of students who 
plan on going to college has 
not changed, there is a defi- 
nite increase in the number 
of career oriented individ- 
uals. Courses such as Family 
Life and Consumer Educa- 
tion have given students di- 
rection in their possible 
fields of endeavor. Many 
seniors also consider the ad- 
vantages of early admissions 
to college. The Co-op pro- 
gram has successfully con- 
tinued, providing an oppor- 
tunity for certain individuals 
to complete their require- 
ments for graduation while 
obtaining beneficial work ex- 
perience. 

Guidance is a hard-work- 
ing department that concen- 
trates solely on the needs of 
the students. The counsel- 
ors are often overloaded 
with schedule changes and 
college applications, but or- 
ganization keeps them pre- 
pared to meet any chal- 
lenge. Dedication and pa- 
tience are the two keys that 
the guidance counselors fol- 
low in giving personal atten- 
tion to individuals, which is 
their main goal and purpose 
in the school.

One of the most compli- 
cated jobs in school is that 
of the secretaries. They 
must be able to type, file, 
take shorthand, and operate 
a xerox machine. More than 
just business skills are re- 
quired, however. The secre- 
taries must project the 
school's image to all outsid- 
ers, and deal with the many 
situations that arise. They 
are the source of communi- 
cation between the school 
and the rest of the commu- 
nity. Paperwork, including 
student and teacher hand- 
books, memos to parents, 
and the daily bulletin, is an- 
other responsibility. They 
must also take phone calls, 
sort mail, use the P. A., ar- 
range for substitute teach- 
ers, and handle thousands of 
dollars from various clubs. 

Many students and teach- 
ers tend to overlook the 
contribution of our thirteen 
office secretaries. Their 
work, however, is vital to the 
school and requires a wide 
range of skills. Their services 
are deserving of praise and 
recognition from the school.

Library Aids 

In order to keep things 
running smoothly, the li- 
brary aids, with the help of 
Miss Baird, performed extra 
functions in the library. Their 
main jobs included stamping 
books during each block and 
stacking the shelves when 
necessary. The library aids 
this year were Kathy Bur- 
gess, Janet Kennedy, Sue 
McCarthy, Linda Fountain, 
Ted Stevens, Lynn Aronson, 
Claire Coughlan, Joyce Vil- 
leneuve, Lisa Lefebvre, Jack- 
ie Keery, Nafie Saba, David 
Sacerdote, Fred Petrucci, 
Sara Winniman and Debbie 
Lefebvre. 

Guidance Aids 

The guidance department, 
one of the most vital areas in 
the school for students, was 
also one of busiest. 
Without the help of Dawn 
Connors, Annalyza Cruz, Vir- 
ginia Paquette, Ellen Silver- 
man, Debbie Little, Lynn 
O'Connell, Doris Robinson, 
Nafie Saba, Tracy Smith, Pe- 
ter Levine, Margie Epstein, 
Clare Coughlan, Kathy 
Schiaffino, Pam Vatrano, 
Todd Davis, Steve Havens 
and Dana Hargan, the coun- 
selors would have been 
swamped with schedule 
changes, college applica- 
tions, and newsletters. The 
aids worked hard to main- 
tain an organized and steady 
system. Their contribution 
was a greatly appreciated 
asset to the school. 

Office Aids 

Each school morning dur- 
ing homeroom, notices were 
read by one of the office 
aids. They announced im- 
portant or sudden bulletins, 




meeting arrangements, and 
upcoming events. Each aid 
spent a great deal of time in 
the office, running errands 
for the secretaries and an- 
swering questions for stu- 
dents and faculty. 

Supply Aids 

Mr. Fil's responsibilities in 
the supply room were made 
easier by Joe Maruca, Jon 
Fein, David Mackler, and Da- 
vid Auerswald, the supply 
aids. They helped distribute 
necessary equipment to the 
classrooms and made sure 
that the shelves were always 
stocked with the materials. 

A.V. Aids 

The A.V. aids this year 
were John Loughman, Mark 
Rosol, Joel Pelletier, Dan 
Aronson and Matt Barez. 
These boys with good me- 
chanical minds kept all elec- 
tronic equipment in excel- 
lent working condition. They 
were in charge of all aspects 
of A.V. supplies, including 
distribution. 

T.V. Aids 

Thanks to the work of the 
T.V. aids, Longmeadow High 
School was again able to 
take advantage of L.H.S. 
T.V. 2. Neil Orenstein, Dave 
Burkhart, Jim Hoyt, Steve 
Petlock, Alex Savich, Thom- 
as Gould, Richard Hough, 
and David Fein prepared 
several film presentations 
for the football team, and for 
other groups and classes. In 
their own T.V. studio, the 
boys learned to handle the 
equipment essential to oper- 
ation.

Dr. William Ferris, whom many of us 
have known as an English teacher, 
spent the first half of this year as vice 
principal during Mr. Teixeira's sabbati- 
cal leave. He found the shift in environ- 
ment from classroom to office striking 
and challenging. As an administrator, 
Dr. Ferris met scores of students from 
every part of the school, although he 
did not see as much of them as a 
teacher sees of his class. He worked 
closely with the front office secretaries 
and administrators and saw less of his 
friends among the faculty. 

Taking his new position on August 2, 
1976, Dr. Ferris faced the task of ad- 
justing the office to suit himself. The 
placement of his desk and the chairs in 
the room could alter the atmosphere of the office. During a meeting, 
the position of the door in particular could dictate the environment. 
Dr. Ferris preferred an open door to make himself accessible, but a 
closed door in certain cases could create a serious, confidential atmo- 
sphere. 

A good administrator must have talent for negotiation. Dr. Ferris 
held four or five meetings a day and gave several talks to parent and 
community groups. He adjusted well to his new position, as he was 
able to remain relaxed and deal objectively with the problems of 
students and teachers. One drawback, however, was a great loss of his 
free time. There were no more after-school basketball games, and Dr. 
Ferris had little time for reading outside of his field. 

After ten years of teaching at Longmeadow High School, Dr. Ferris is 
well acquainted with his subject and has a polished teaching tech- 
nique. However, the new position came at a time when he was restless 
for some change. As vice principal, he missed reading original stories 
by students, but not correcting fifty essays on Macbeth. In the future, 
he may pursue the administrative route on the secondary level, or 
possibly leave to teach English or communication courses on a college 
level. 

The two positions that Dr. Ferris has held at LHS have different 
potentialities. A teacher can directly help a student both academically 
and emotionally; an administrator can also help emotionally, but he 
can only make it easier for others to help him academically. The 
advantage of being vice principal, however, was that it gave him the 
power to make exceptions. An average student might be more affect- 
ed by his teachers, but the exceptional one needs the attention of 
someone who can twist the rules. 

As vice principal, Dr. Ferris enjoyed being able to "make things 
happen." Teachers very often have ideas for change, but they must 
wait for others to put them into effect. Dr. Ferris had the opportunity 
to personally see his ideas through to reality. He made a mark in the 
way students spend six to eight hours of their day, rather than just 
one. For his contributions to our high school careers as both a teacher 
and an administrator, we, of Longmeadow High School, wish Dr. Ferris 
the very best of luck in all his future endeavors.

senior class council 





Senior class council be- 
gan as an unusually large 
group, attracting close to 
one hundred students who 
were eager to present their 
ideas, launch new projects, 
and work on the "Responsi- 
bility Program" for open 
door priveleges. President 
Steven Zeller ran strict 
meetings according to par- 
liamentary procedure. The 
main goal of the year was to 
raise three thousand dol- 
lars. Communication was 
emphasized and achieved 
by a special public relations 
group. 

A series of newsletters 
were sent home to each sen- 
ior, telling of important de- 
velopments and upcoming 
events. These new ideas 
were very helpful in unify- 
ing the class before gradu- 
ation.

Class 
Council 

Freshman Class Council 

concerned itself with two 
main goals this year: making 
money and uniting the class. 
Led by President Scott 
Zucker, they fulfilled their 
first objective through 
dances and other fun- 
draisers. They also had spirit 
projects, such as the home- 
coming, which helped bring 
the class together. 

"Sophomore Class Coun- 
cil," according to President 
Merry Chase, "intended to 
have activities to raise mon- 
ey and bring our class to- 
gether." They planned a ten- 
nis tournament, a Halloween 
Movie Night, a crafts fair, 
and a "Support Your Col- 
ors" dance. A voluntary 
council system was put into 
effect in an effort to attract 
a wider variety of people, 
and to receive new ideas and 
opinions from the class. "We 
have a lot going for us," was 
a summation of the sopho- 
more class by an enthusias- 
tic member. "We are on our 
way to reaching the goals we 
have set for our senior 
year." 

Junior Class Council was 
an enthusiastic group that 
enjoyed working together 
for the class and school. 
This year's emphasis was on 
settling the controversial 
open door question. Supple- 
mentary to this were pro- 
jects to increase the trea- 
sury such as dances, an auc- 
tion, a raffle, and a volleyball 
tournament. The class ex- 
panded its services to in- 
clude work involving local 
hospitals, making their pres- 
ence felt not only within the 
school but in the communi- 
ty- 
President Bunny Zacarian 
said, "During this year, our 
class really showed dedica- 
tion. The number of people 
who actively participated in 
class council was very im- 
pressive."

Key- 
ettes 



The environment of the 
1976-1977 Keyette Organi- 
zation was one of warmth, 
friendship, and spirit. There 
was smooth communication 
between advisor Mrs. Rah- 
konen and the board, so that 
every member felt closely in 
touch with the entire club. 
The girls' enthusiasm led to 
a maximum output of work- 
ing hours and finished pro- 
jects. 

Lynn Vincunas, President 
of the Keyettes, had a fine 
sense of leadership, and she 
guided the club in their ef- 
fort to help other people. 
Lynn conducted serious 
meetings to take care of old 
and new business, but she 
always left time for cheers 
and a bit of fun and excite- 
ment. This relaxed attitude 
proved beneficial to the 
group. Vice President Mary 
Jo Quigley, Secretary He- 
laine Trachtenberg, and 
Treasurer Janet Park were 
the other industrious offi- 
cers whose efforts were felt 
in every facet of the organi- 
zation. 

The Cancer Fund was the 
first priority project, to 
which profits from many 
Keyette activities were di- 
rected. Projects included 
"Dial An Apple," "Rent-A- 
Keyette," along with several 
dances. The Keyettes also 
hoped to start a Hall of 
Fame for the school in which 
outstanding records could 
be permanently placed, and 
a Springfield branch of the 
Kiwanis group for women, a 
national sponsor of the club. 






Helaine Trachtenberg 
stated that the goals of the 
club were "to become bet- 
ter acquainted with our 
community, help others in 
any possible way, and to 
unite the school."

Key 



Club 






"Challenge Indifference," 
the theme of Key Club this 
year, was a phrase each 
member believed in through 
every project and function. 
The environment was made 
up of hard-working people 
and long hours, yet there 
was an easy-going atmo- 
sphere, and spirits were al- 
ways high. Success came 
from working among friends 
and caring for others. 

The club began projects 
during the summer, and by 
the opening of school they 
were way ahead of last 
year's record. Each member 
had a minimum obligation of 
fifteen working hours, for a 
total of five projects per 
month. Included in the list of 
activities were football pro- 
grams, the Blood Bank, a 
hayride, projects for 
Shriner's Hospital, a car 
wash, and health seminars 
for the school. 

Advisor Roger LeBlanc 
was the backbone of the or- 
ganization. He gained the re- 
spect of the club officers 
(President Ronald Gorden- 
stein, First Vice-President 
Jeff Burnett, Second Vice- 
President Mike Sullivan, 
Treasurer Peter Sweitzer, 
and Secretary Craig Cloud) 
and members, as well as 
that of the school and ad- 
ministration. He offered the 
Key Club a balance of guid- 
ance and independence.

tices, homeroom practices, 
court sessions, violation 
committees, and the spirit 
chants made for some of the 
lighter, funnier moments

k 



The education gained at school may take a person 
where he wants to go, but as he thinks back on his school 
days, his friends and free time will form many of the 
fondest memories. Longmeadow High School is made up 
of fifteen hundred individuals, all of whom have lives of 
their own outside the classroom. When school-run aca- 
demics, athletics, arts, and service can be left behind, 
each student enters the environment of the self where 
he follows his personal interests. 

During the school day, there is time for the self on the 
grounds of Longmeadow High School. No demands are 
made on a student during lunch, and no one will stop a 
girl or a boy from stepping out to the courtyard during 
free time to get away from it all. Students are not robots, 
and while some have more capacity than others for a 
scholarly environment, none can go through an entire 
day with no release of personality. 

Homelife is another part of the self environment. If a 
student is not doing homework, then he is apart from 
school both physically and psychologically. From there, 
he may have his own musical, athletic, or community 
activities; or he may prefer to relax with friends and go 
out as often as possible. The environment is either un- 
structured or self-structured, compared to the imposed 
structure of classrooms and school activities. 

Some people need guidance and regulation to bring 
them up to full potential; others need freedom to ex- 
plore their own talents. The self environment is not only 
needed for relaxation. It can also be conducive to cre- 
ative and dedicated work. 



- 




Within the high school grounds, 
there are certain spots where the self 
environment takes over during the 
school day. The cafeteria at lunchtime 
is an example of an unstructured envi- 
ronment. For half an hour every day, 
students have the freedom to leave 
schoolwork behind and just chat and 
munch with their friends. When they 
can be reached, the courtyard, girls' 
and boys' rooms, and student parking 
lot provide similar releases to the world 
of choice. 





Home at last! Mom and Baby Brother may not be the 
centers of social life, but the home environment is the most 
influencial in the shaping of our attitudes and personalities. 
Coming home after school can be a great relief after a busy 
day. Even with homework ahead for the evening, there is 
something relaxing about the familiar surroundings of home 
and family. All pretenses and disguises can be dropped, and 
the true self takes over. A typical afternoon or evening with 
the family is sure to include a family meal, some household 
chores, and leisure time for the telephone, the television, a 
good magazine, or just hanging around with the folks. 



HOBBIES 



I voull i 







178 



Even the many opportunities 
available at the high school are 
not enough to fill the lives of most 
students. Some people's hobbies 
are a continuation of what they 
do in school: artwork, sports, dra- 
ma, music, or applied arts. In 



many cases, an individual's inter- 
ests widely vary from anything of- 
fered at the school. There are stu- 
dents involved in figure skating, 
karate, squash, CB radios, hiking, 
and the keeping of exotic pets. In 
their spare time, LHS students 



surround themselves with the en- 
vironments of their choice, and in 
some cases these may be the 
fields that will develope into life- 
long careers. 




Work, Work, Work! 



For some students, the end of a 
school day means sports, clubs, 
homework, or pure freedom. For 
a large group of people, however, 
it means that it is time for work. 
The waiters and waitresses move 



from the school environment to 
the bustle of a restaurant. Anyone 
stopping into Friendly's or Ab- 
dow's is sure to spot a few of their 
fellow LHS students, busily earn- 
ing some extra cash. Other stu- 



dents are salespeople, do volun- 
teer work at hospitals or nursing 
homes, work with children, or are 
already specializing in their cho- 
sen field. 




SATURDAY NIGHT 




Where were you on Saturday night? Spending a ca- 
sual evening at a friend's house? Out with your favorite 
girl or guy? Dropping in on one of the school dances? 
Stuck at home with a term paper? Or did you join in on 
one of the most popular and frequent events for Long- 
meadow High School students: the party!

each day. 

As graduating seniors, you'll be making big 
decisions, too! When you choose a school, a job 
or a mate, we hope you will also decide to in- 
clude our newspapers in your plans. 

Each morning, evening and Sunday, we pro- 
vide a mix of information, entertainment and value 
worth far more than the cost of your subscription.

The most significant purpose of Masacksic is to reflect the school year 

in enough different ways so as to capture the experiences of every 

student. It is the job of the yearbook editors to represent the entire 

school body-with no exceptions. Where any club or activity is not 

represented in this book, it is either because they did not wish to be, or 

because they would not take the time to be photographed. 

Our yearbook is the product of widespread effort and varying talents, 

all working toward a single goal. The Masacksic editors and the entire 

staff sacrificed school hours and weekends toward this project. We hope 

our efforts have added to the memories you will carry with you of 

Longmeadow High School. 

Our special thanks go to: 

Mel Grant, our yearbook advisor 

Don Lendry, our American Yearbook 

representative 

Brooks Johnson, our professional 

photographer 

Our student photographers: 

Chris Sheffield, Ken Gruskin, 

Lori Deliso, Neil Radding. 

Lee Webber, and Steve 

Warshaw
